Check out this incredible opportunity -- I just checked on airfare, and right now it's about $900 roundtrip, which would be in addition to the training camp expense. I would do the 10-day trip. If anyone is even remotely interested please let me know. Visit www.pedrosauer.com for more information.
Experience a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity this year:
train Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu in the place where it was born!
The Pedro Sauer Association is excited to offer a world class training camp in beautiful Petropolis, Brazil, complete with some of the best jiu-jitsu instructors in the world! You'll enjoy the comfortable and inviting accommodations of the Pousada Mata Atlantica (bed and breakfast) located on Professor Pedro Sauer's family property. Guests will stay 2-3 to a room with families having their own room. While there, you will be treated to custom-catered meals prepared fresh just for you. And while you're at the Pousada, three meals a day are included. Plus, your group sightseeing itineraries have been designed so that you see and do all that you can in the time you have. The itinerary hits the Brazilian “must do” spots, and all associated group-travel costs are included in your camp fee.

There is no more authentic place to experience the art of jiu-jitsu than in Petropolis. The lush forests and rich natural beauty of the area offer an unmatched opportunity to hike, go sightseeing, and enjoy a vast array of water sports and ecological tours. And whether you choose the 10-day or 14-day camp, there will be plenty of time to take advantage of the dining, leisure, and nightlife aspects of Brazil.
But let's not forget why you're here: the chance to train with world class Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu pros. Our 2009 Brazil camp is designed to make you a better, more knowledgeable, and more accomplished grappler no matter your age, gender, or current level of experience. At the Pousada, you'll not only get unlimited open mat time in the training facility, but you'll also get two hours of additional instructional training per day (except on Sunday) from instructors like Professor Sauer himself.
Under the tutelage of some of the world's greatest jiu jitsu players, you will understand just how Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu has come to dominate the world martial arts scene so quickly.
Plus, you'll have the opportunity to train in the very places made famous by true masters like Helio Gracie! You'll love the authentic experience of rolling at the now-famous locations where it all started, such as Gracie Humaitá, Corpo/Quatro (Body of Four), Gracie Petropolis and others! (Locations and instructors may be subject to change.)
So hurry if you'd like to take advantage of this rare opportunity because availability is limited. Come experience unique cultural attractions, rich natural beauty, and train with world class jiu-jitsu pros in the country that started it all: Brazil! If you have any questions, email PSBJJA Association Director Mike Horihan at email@example.com or call him at 865-696-8000.
